Former Speaker of the House Next Gingrich said over the weekend that “millionaires who say they are underprivileged” shouldn’t disrespect the country.
Gingrich said he finds it “very offensive.”
Check it out:
“I don’t tune in to [sports] to worry about politics,” he said.
“I find it very offensive,” Gingrich said, adding that he believes kneeling players have sent sports down a slippery slope that will ultimately lead to the anthem no longer being played at games.“They’re not exactly oppressed,” he said of people like Colin Kaepernick who refuse to stand for presentations of colors at games.
He said that it is their right to take “all their after-tax income and give it to some left-wing nutcase group,” but that the anthem is sacred.
“Don’t impose on me your sense of somehow, you feel oppressed,” Gingrich said. “If you’re a multimillionaire who feels oppressed, you need a therapist [and] not a publicity stunt.”

Dear NFL: We will not support millionaire ingrates who hate America and disrespect our Armed Forces and Veterans. Who wins a football game has ZERO impact on our lives. Who fights for and defends our nation has every impact on our lives. We stand with the Heroes, not a bunch of rich, entitled, arrogant, ungrateful, anti-American, degenerates. Signed, we the people.
